Is it possible to first do minimal Fedora 18 installation and then using
one or two commands (yum ??) install every package that is included in
GNOME desktop installation done by Anaconda? Maybe it's more question
about the name of meta-package that will pull all needed dependencies. I
can't find the right package name.
trying to follow the installation directions at:
and getting this, which isn't productive. Anyone have a better cheat sheet?

Hi Have Samba setup on my F14 and new install F18 machine, and while I
can move large individual files between machines, when I try to move
directories between machines, the transfer will start but then locks up.
A Google search reveals that this has been a known problem for some
time, but so far I have seen no solution posted. It appears to have
something to do with nautilus.
Is anyone aware of any solutions to this problem?
Thanks in advance.
When I to install in F18 google-chrome-stable-17.0.963.56.12-121963.i386
I get the following error:
file /usr/bin from install of google-chrome-stable... conflicts with
How do I get around that error?
I have many CHARTS and DIAGRAMS..

Recently installed F-18 system doesn't shut down properly. The symptoms
* I click Shut Down, using KDE
* System appears to stop normally: fan stops, screen goes blank,
etc. EXCEPT that the light around the power switch doesn't go
completely dark; it continues to glow faintly blue. I don't
know what this means; no documentation.
* The system won't restart till it is reset. This can be done
either by pressing Reset on the computer or by powering the
system down and then powering it up.
* When the system is restarted, a message from systemd-fsck
appears to indicate that the disk drives were not closed
cleanly. /var/log/boot.log is attached.
Apart from this, the system runs fine.
Motherboard is ASUS M3A78-EM with a 4-core CPU.
In a new Fedora-18/64 bit install in a new computer I am unable to set
the resolution above 1024x768 at 60HZ and would like to set it higher.

The following does not work. I got a black screen and had to bring up
another terminal and remove the file in order to reboot. The truth is I
don't really know what I'm doing, perhaps someone who understand this
can point out what needs to be done?

DefaultDepth 16 #Choose the depth (16||24)

Any suggestion appreciated.

In Fedora 16, I used to use a call to the function:
which was probably provided by one on the openmotif package.
I cannot find such a library anywhere now.
On I wrong?
In fact this function is required by Minuit2
Thank for your help.

The f17 update of cups to cups-1.5.4-18.fc17 on Feb 25th caused cups to
fail to start. This update had some security updates with a creation of
a new file /etc/cups/cups-files.conf that apparently can not be written
to by cupsd.
Log errors demonstrated that the lack ssl certificates on this unit
caused cupsd to fail. I commented the certificates out of
the /etc/cups-files.conf file, and got cups to start, but I still could
not get it to communicate with the cups print server on the network.
I finally gave up and added the line :
to the /etc/cups/client.conf file and was able to get printer service to
Has anyone else had this problem and found the solution other than the
use of the client.conf file.
Hi: This box is running f16. It has been upgraded in stages from f10.
Two disks, and when last tried could boot Win Vista, Vista recovery,
f12 and f16. It usually runs MythTV under f16, 24/7.
Preupgrade appeared to run ok, with the expectation of downloading the
installer on reboot, as previously. Curl reported error 404, with later
error messages as in the Subject.
I have saved a download of squashfs.img
Earlier this year dracut reported that ...lv_root contained a file
system with errors, inodes 'part of a corrupted orphan linked list', but
things still seemed to work. Eventually I ran fsck on ..lv_root.
Changes were made and the boot complaints stopped.
Last month, prompted by a post here that I can't now find, I ran fdisk
-l and saved the result. It sees /dev/sda and /dev/sdb, and one
partition on each is marked as bootable, but none of the lvm volumes
contains a valid partition table. I've looked for grub and grub2 files,
and although grub.conf has a recent date its contents are pre-f16.
I really don't want to wipe everything and start again. Help please.
